Iron Oxide Reactor Details

Use Solar Heat to Drive system


used to produce hydrogen on
an industrial scale since 1900
Iron Oxide Reactor Details

Proprietary oxide
transport

MokEnergy. William Mook originally developed the idea of iron rings


to transport oxide and iron through a reactor and continued
innovation to improve efficiency by recovering heat from exhaust
gases and recycling that heat through the reactor.

MOK NREL

MokEnergy. William Mook developed a proprietary method of


creating 20.0 meter diameter dishes inflated with air and housed
within stationary transparent spherical sockets also inflated with air
that point in any direction and are impervious to wind loads. Made
of PET plastic these dishes cost pennies per square meter -
radically reducing costs associated with solar concentrating
systems to pennies per square meter.

Proprietary concentrator
and Tracking Parabolic Dish. Richard Diver of Sandia stands in front of a 6.5 meter parabolic
dish made of 228 stainless steel mirrors costing $100s per square meter.
